1. Whenever I exercise in cold to moderately cold weather I get severe shooting pains in my inner ears. I can even just be walking, and if there is a slight breeze, and the temperature is below 65 degrees, I get this pain. When I get back in the house it goes away in about 15 minutes. Sometimes I stuff cotton or kleenex in my ears, which seems to help a little bit.
2. Occasionally, for no apparent reason, my outer ears will get really hot and bright red. Sometimes it is just one and sometimes both. The only thing I've noticed that has trigged this is when I drink alcohol. But, it will still happen even if I'm not drinking.
I told my GP about these ear issues, and he looked at me like I was from Mars. Does anyone else have one or both of these problems, or even heard about them?
I can completely relate to your problem. The exact same thing happens to me when I exercise outdoors and it's below a certain temperature(it doesn't even have to be cold!). I have tried earplugs and cotton, but they don't work as well as I'd like. Sometimes after a long run or after biking outside, when I come indoors I will get a splitting headache. It has gotten to the point where I will not exercise outside unless it is at least 70 degrees. It's rediculous and I would love to know what is going on. If you find out, please let me know. I haven't gone to the Dr. about this yet, but I don't have much faith in them anyways. I also get the thing with the burning ears, where it feels like they're on fire, but I can't explain that one either. Thanks for writing. Pls write me at my e-mail address if you get this!
I have had the same problem!!! Whenever I exercise outside at all, I get severe shooting pains in my inner ears. I can even just be walking. I have been to the doctor as well and no answer, he says allergies maybe. Anyone know? It is so bad that I cry from the pain which subsides within an hour after being inside. I have absolutely no problem exercizing indoors...! If it's even slightly cool, I have to wear a headband outside just to be outdoors.
Anyone find out anything yet??

I've had this same problem since as long as I can remember. But this is the first time I've searched it up and it's also the first time search has failed to provide me an answer!! There's nothing about it online.
When I was 8 -10 years old, I would go running in cold winter mornings for school. I would get the most disabling pain in my throat, then moving to my ears eventually giving me a slight headache and dizzyness.
Right now I've just been biking in the cold weather the same problem occurred. I've been indoors for almost 1 hour now and the pain has subsided about 90% Although I can still feel aching in my throat
Someone find me a cure or I'm moving to a hot country!

Can't believe I am not the only one that gets this! I live in a hot country now so don't get the pain but still get the red hot ears some evenings, it's only when I am tired though so I have always put it down to being run down and needing sleep. Had it for years and it goes after 30 minutes so never concerned me.
I am going to the Doc about my dizzy spells with Tinnitus so you never know they might be connected!
